Car is up and running again. Ran a wire for the fuel injector power only to find that I made a big mistake.

Yep.. I'm human like many of you. I looked at the dead bottom middle fuse, fuse 7 as the fuel injector power. That'* the right fuse #, wrong location. Fuse 7 is one above Seems I was more tired than I knew and read the diagram wrong. Fixed the fuse (actual #7 in the process of testing and wanted to shoot myself for all the work over a fuse.

Found it before you ripped out the dash?

Will, I'm thinking if the wire is bypassed he had to pull the dash to get at it. Bummer.
Now the question is, what made the fuse blow? There must be a short in the F. I. circuit somewhere??

Boost - Try checking the resistance of all the injectors.

Sorry.. was on kitten patrol last night when I posted.

The dash wasn't fully out. Merely pulled to get behind it. I wonder if Olds or Buickman got a picture of the dash laying on the seats.

I got to the passenger side fuse/relay center and tested to ensure I didn't have continuity between the fuse I belived to be #7 and the wire I needed power for the FI'*. Being that there was no continuity I ran a new wire from the incorrect fuse # to the injectors. This supplied me with voltage to the injectors. and now the fuel pump wasn't powering up. A direct correlation in time from when I messed with it to the new problem. Retracing my steps, the diagram for fuses was revisited and I noticed the error I made.

Fixed the routing of the wiring and with a fresh fuse in #7 it fired up and runs great.

As for why the fuse blew, it doesn't appear to be anything with the injectors. Since, I've gotten on it a bit and all seems well. Unless it blows again, I won't have time to pull the injectors and test windings until I pull the rail again. I'm going to believe it'* a simple fuse and things happen.

Stick a couple extra fuses in the glove just in case. Hope it was just a fluke too.
Can't you just check resistance of the injectors by pulling the connectors off?
Then possibly check fof a short to ground.

Yes and know. Room and ability to get the meter leads in there give my laziness a reason to exist. I've checked the car and it does appear that this was a fluke fuse that popped.
